2013 Season Highlights
Twentieth win ties single-season franchise record
SILVER SPRING, MD – by Lukas Favale -The Alexandria Aces banged out 13 hits, including at least one from all nine starters, as they rolled to an 11-2 win over the Silver Spring/Takoma Thunderbolts in a weather shortened five inning game Saturday night in Silver Spring. Colton Konvicka (Longwood) and Christian Choman (Iona) both drove in three runs while Brandon Burris (Appalachian State) collected three hits. The win moves the Aces to 20-13 on the season, matching the franchise record for wins in a season, set last year under Head Coach Corey Haines.
The Aces wasted little time jolting the T-Bolts in the top of the first inning. Dylan Riner (Austin Peay State) led off the game with a triple into the gap in left center field. Burris then knocked him in with an RBI single, to give the Aces a 1-0 lead just two batters into the contest. After Nick Kranick’s (Flagler) double made it second and third with one out for the Aces, Konvicka picked up an RBI with a ground out before Choman hit an RBI single to make it 3-0 after just a half inning.

Nick Kranick knocks in three runs in win
ALEXANDRIA, VA – by Lukas Favale – Colin Milon (George Washington) allowed just two runs over seven innings, and Nick Kranick drove in three runs, including the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth, as the Alexandria Aces edged the Gaithersburg Giants 4-3 Thursday night at Frank Mann Field. The win pushed the Aces past the Giants for second place in the Cal Ripken League.
In a back and forth affair, the Aces took the lead for good in the bottom of the eighth. Blaine Bower (Elon) led off the inning with an infield single, legging of a ball hit to the hole between third and short. After being moved over to second on a sacrifice bunt, Bower would eventually score on a Kranick RBI single, giving the Aces a 4-3 lead. Nick Collins (Georgetown) would be thrown out at home on the play.
Defense stumbles for Aces in defeat
ALEXANDRIA, VA – by Lukas Favale – The D.C. Grays scored four unearned runs, including three in the first inning, to inch past the Alexandria Aces 4-3 Tuesday night at Frank Mann Field. The defeat drops the Aces, just 5-5 in their last ten games, to 18-12 on the season and down to third place in the Cal Ripken League.
It was a sloppy start in the field for the Aces once again Tuesday night. After committing five errors in two games on Monday, the normally crisp fielding Aces made an error in the top of the first. That opened the door for the Grays to jump out to a quick lead against Aces starting pitcher Ronnie Glenn (UPenn). Read more
